A CHRISTMAS HOMECOMING – On December 18, 1965, Gemini 7 astronauts Jim Lovell and Frank Borman returned from a two-week voyage in space, splashing down in the Atlantic about 6.4 nautical miles from the targeted landing point. Soon U.S. Navy frogmen from the USS Wasp were there to pick them up. As Frank Borman recalled, “We’d been in the water about ten minutes when we saw a Navy frogman’s face in the right window. He plugged in his inter-phone, and his first words were ‘Merry Christmas.’”
